This Spring, lead singer of Liverpudlian Britpop band, Space, heads to Darwen Library Theatre for a night of nineties throwbacks!
Space rose to prominence in the mid-1990s with several hit singles and a duet with Cerys Matthews of Catatonia.
The melodic core of Space’s sound was inspired by 1960s guitar groups such as The Kinks and The Who, which helped group them in the Britpop movement.
However, their imaginative, pioneering usage of electronic instruments and sampling drew influences as diverse as post-punk, ska, techno, hip hop and vintage film soundtracks.
The band were also known for their deliberately over-the-top, dark humoured lyrics, which frequently dealt with topics such as serial killers, failed relationships, social outcasts, and mental illness.
Tommy will be playing all the Space hits, including Female of the Species, Neighbourhood, Me and You vs The World and The Ballad of Tom Jones, along with a selection of his solo material.
